Whenever I deploy for a new mission on Campaign, the screen flickers with some black lines after loading finishes and the cutscenes are skipped automatically (orc bosses intro / Tyranid bosses intro / Angel Gate invasion / etc...). Moreover, cinematics are also skipped automatically (Typhon intro / Davian Thule dreadnought revival / etc...).
Game version is 188.8.131.5243 with Chaos Rising Expansion. I run the game on the following specs
CPU -- Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @ 3.00
MOBO -- Gigabyte G41MT-S2P
RAM -- Transcend JM1600KLN 4GB (x2) DDR3
GPU -- MSI N550GTX-TI CYCLONE II 1GD5/OC
PSU -- XFX Pro 550W Gold
HDD -- Seagate ST9750420AS 750 GB
Sound -- VIA (on board)
OS -- Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) 64 bit
Display -- BenQ E 900 @ 1280 x 1024 resolution
I run the game as admin and I also have put the game on my Anti Virus exception list. I have UAC disabled and Secondary Logon enabled. I have even tried compatibility mode for both XP and Vista but the problem still persist. Is this a problem related to codec or something ? ( I do have Shark 007 installed on the system). Can someone please provide help / suggestions for a possible fix ??
Thanks in advance
